The Eagles followed up the landmark success of Hotel California with their hardest-rocking album to date. By 1979, the gauzy country of On the Border and Desperado seemed like a distant memory, replaced by the sneering, searing rock of “Heartache Tonight” and “These Shoes.” Glenn Frey and Don Henley had once made Los Angeles sound like a carefree oasis, but songs like “In the City” describe a city that has grown dangerous and suffocating: “Nothing grows, and life ain’t very pretty / No one’s there to catch you when you fall / Somewhere out on that horizon / Faraway from the neon sky / I know there must be somethin’ better.” The onslaught of punk and disco made it hard for the Eagles to maintain their identity, and though “The Disco Strangler,” “King of Hollywood,” and “Teenage Jail” are ostensibly about the sleazy ways of others, it is hard not to read these songs as a reflection of the Eagles’ own state of mind. Nevertheless, Timothy B. Schmit’s “I Can’t Tell You Why” brings the album a touch of delicacy worthy of Al Green. The good times were almost over, but this portrait of suspicion and exhaustion is vivid, and “The Sad Café” brings the perfect bittersweet ending to a decade dominated by the Eagles.
